Dig the comping Andrew and really nice job on the melody!
I did have fun. A hard song in that it is very demanding of diatonic chord tone arps to sound authentic, and I have my more linear blues ball & chain.
I just opened my Real Book and there it was,
I would love it if everyone owned this book. It probably brought together more local bands and jam sessions than any other book in the history of the world.
Late? Dude I just woke up. Time to play.
Yes, you did hit some changes, but they were in a crosswalk and you left the scene to go and jam more and be carefree (you were) nice job.
What a nice version. What was your recipe for your tone? It sounds like a pedal steel tone. I really like it.
Haven't you used that line before? lol.
You navigated these waters well and even played in a couple rapids.
That's a nice soft acoustic tone, and lots of cool arps. Nice job
Played like a pro, great forward thinking. Nice authentic vibrato that you used just for the Django effect. Cool my man,
Again, I hear an almost pedal steel tone, wait now it's another tone,,, ok I get it, it's a pretty tone orgy. Wow, now vocals, I bow to you.
But sadly you said "come on darlin" and she didn't respond, she just drifted away.
Oh well, it happens, life.
I didn't bother plugging the amp in for this, just grabbed the nearest guitar and played one take.
It's my Harley Benton Junior, P90 with volume and tone both around 5, into my recording interface and Reaper. A touch of reverb (ReaVerberate:Mix Alive) and EQ (ReaEQ:Fender/Mesa).
this is the first time using this recently bought Yamaha acoustic. I had to shave down the saddle a bit. It would sound better with a set of 11s. I tried to make it sound like an old timey recording, but only half of that got realized, a fun track.
All Of Me
I think I butchered the track, did one take, lost chords after 20 seconds and continued to play. Later I listened to original track and I feel need to apologise to Django and everyone who will hear my playing.
You did good and here's why, this is a hard tune in that it's chord tone playing much more than what a big slice of blues and rock players are used to. That's the challenge with this tune, playing vertically, mostly arpeggios and triads of two octaves or more, in 16ths, ouch,
I heard your rock/blues foundation in your playing but you also quickly found chord tones to hit at vital spots, like breaking away from old and trying something new. And it worked. Put in another 100 hours playing vertically and it will forever change you,
You had some good and creative lines. Did you mic the Yamaha or go direct? It sounded fine.
Some real clever riffs and creative runs kept it interesting. Nicely done.
I mic'd it from about 2ft away.
